Chairman Nunes is cracking down on Obama’s weaponized intel community, and he’s now zeroing in on former CIA Director John Brennan.
According to reports, Nunes is planning to investigate Brennan’s connections to the Steele dossier.
Word of the congressman’s new probe comes after the release of a Nunes’ memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI.
Brennan, in an interview on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” lashed out at Nunes, saying he “abused the office of chairmanship” with the memo.
The website claimed the report will identify diplomats who worked with those close to Hillary Clinton to help ex-British spy Christopher Steele put together the disputed dossier.
“Those are the first two phases” of Nunes’ multipart inquiry, a senior investigator said. “In Phase 3, the involvement of the intelligence community will come into sharper focus.”
“John Brennan did more than anyone to promulgate the dirty dossier,” the investigator said. “He politicized and effectively weaponized what was false intelligence against Trump.”
In testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan swore he did not know who commissioned the dossier, even though Justice Department and FBI officials had known it was funded by the Clinton campaign, RealClear Investigations noted.
